  • Over hangout/phone


At 8:30 pm the conversation started on Hangout, later due to some internet connectivity issue, the phone medium was used. It was more an introductory session, where Th3snehasish discussed what type of help he is looking from this program.

Snehasish: We have planned to have some workshops in different places of Odisha. In which we are going to include some new wikipedians, who will be contributing to wikipedia for a long run. I have suggested for a "Student ambassador program". Issuing some Certificates for the students will be great.
Tito: Sailesh and Subha are working there. They will help you here. It is not really a part of Train-a-Wikipedian Snehasish: Yes Sir, Sailesh is going to help me in it.
Snehasish:For Online Trainings: We are going to have some Hangout and Hangout on Air Programs every week. It will include Training Sessions and Office Hours. Training Sessions are the Hangouts in which we will train some new stuffs to the Wikimedians. And office hours are for the ones who need help in some issues.
Tito: This is interesting, and some of these may be included in this program, we need to check.

Follow-up conversation: in 3 days
